SUPERB Sheer Black Tulle & Ruffled Taffeta 1930's Evening Gown
An awesome 1930's evening gown in sheer black tulle. Ruffled taffeta on the puffed short sleeves. More rows of ruffled taffeta on the sweeping full skirt. Side snap closures. Please note that this is a completely SHEER black dress. I didn't have a slip in stock that would fit under it so it is shown with the cover of the dress from showing through. Really, any black slip will work, or you can be adventurous and wear a colorful slip unerneath instead (how about red?!).

Fabric is wool felt with velvet trim. No maker’s label. Good condition with some minor moth nibble on the underside of the brim; NOT holes all the way through, and you can see from the close-up that the feather used to be longer and is broken off.

1930'S Emerald Green Silk Dress
This vintage late 20's / 1930's dress is just stunning. The fabric is gorgeous in the deep emerald green silk velvet. What makes this even more special is the rare condition. It looks like it has never been worn. There's a sheer nude color liner in the bodice that has almost no wear. It has the original belt, metal side snaps, & gathers on the sleeves. Another wonderful thing about this dress is the style is very wearable today. It's not so over the top that you would look like you were wearing a costume. It's perfect for an elegant evening dress.
1930's Long Green Gold Evening Gown
This is one of the most gorgeous gowns we have ever had! A long 20's / 30's vintage dress/gown. The photos truly don't do this one justice! The fabric is amazing. It's a silky slightly shiny green, possibly rayon or silk blend, with metallic gold thread running through it in a floral design. It's handmade, the bodice is lined in beige silk, there's a fabric weight in the back of the neck on the collar. Dress hooks on one side, has an amazing belt & metal buckle with a black bird on it. The neck is trimmed in 4 metal filigree buttons. Skirt flares out dramatically.
1930'S Purple Bias Cut Dress Set
This is one of the most gorgeous gowns we have. An amazing 1930's long vintage gown / dress with a matching jacket. The straps are braided, and the jacket has puffy shoulders & flares out in the back. The only issue with this is it's small and has no zipper or button opening. It needs a zipper or buttons put in , in order to get it on comfortably. We did not want to do it as not to ruin the historical integrity of the dress. The new owner can take it in to have it altered to her liking. Very dramatic!
1930's Adorable Blue Floral Day Dress
This is one of the most adorable vintage day dresses we've seen. Semi-sheer super soft white cotton voile with a delicate blue & red floral print. The fabric alone is something to collect. A designers dream. The blue glass buttons in the front are so unusual and super cute too. Circa 1930's with little puff sleeves, delicate lace trim, metal snap closures. Doesn't get any cuter than this.
1930s Cotton print day dress

1930s Dark coral evening gown
Made for a starlet. Wow, words can't describe the absolute gorgeousness of this rare gown from the thirties. The smocking on the front and back is intricate. The hem a work of art. The puff sleeves give the dress the extra drama a glamour girl needs. Be a star!
1930s Feedcloth day dress
Cool, light and airy for a long, hot summer. Picture yourself barefoot, a bucket of fresh picked raspberries swinging gently by your side. The watering hole echos the sounds of children hollering and splashing as bees drone overhead. Out steps your own Ben Quick, his blue eyes pierce into the depths of your soul...you're there.
